So relaxed they almost forgot to perform. Very envious. Super mellow, and laid back. Samson finds some energy from somewhere. For the most part very much late night come down music. Not so much in the way of reds ,vitamin C, or cocaine in Egypt, I guess. ;)
Sounds like the mics weren't very high in the air, but everything is very clear, and there's good bass response. The recording quality is very listenable, though, perhaps, from an open taping culture, leaving a bit to be desired. Many fans of other groups would be overjoyed to get a recording of this quality, certainly so from a somewhat sparsely attended event.
The reputation of these shows precedes them, so extremely late in getting round to them. Please excuse the noobiness. Very pleased to have the opportunity to experience this moment in history. Must be heard to be understood, I think.
It's as much a mystery as that of the Pyramids themselves that zero songs from Blues for Allah made even a hint of an appearance over the three days in Egypt, but I'm not here to armchair quarterback. It is what it is, as they say.
Would like to have been a fly on the wall when The Who got the call about the Dead borrowing their kit for a gig in Egypt.
I avoided listening to the Giza shows because I read in Phil's book that they played "badly". While they do make some amazingly obvious mistakes that would be excruciating trainwrecks in other shows, the energy they're tapping here is something you usually hear in tapes from about ten years earlier. Seriously, Sugaree peaks like a '68 Viola Lee Blues. It's 'cause they were psyched to be in Egypt, of course, and when you're listening to this show, even the blunders become part of the magic. Billy's playing awful good for a drummer with a broken wrist, too.
